McCoy moves to WSB

Published: 09 December 2003

Garry McCoy has confirmed that he will ride for the NCR Ducati squad in the 2004 World Superbike Championship.

The Australian rider, who was with the Kawasaki MotoGP team this year, will replace Regis Laconi after the Frenchman left to ride for the factory Ducati WSB squad in 2004.

A long time GP rider, McCoy is renowned for his spectacular all action riding style and will be a welcome addition to the WSB championship.

He said: " It’s great to get the ride. I was open to most offers but the deal with NCR just came together easily. I’m looking forward to being on a competitive bike and the WSB paddock seems a fair bit more relaxed than MotoGP. "
